About Eggless Chocolate Pastry / Cake Recipe

I have tried out different variations of eggless cakes before , but today got perfect no fail egg less cake recipe and very happy to share it with you. One of my friend’s had asked me to put up egg less baking recipe on my website, and this is specially for you my friend . Though I have used butter in my sponge cake, you can substitute it with oil. This is a super easy cake recipe, and if you want your sponge cake to be chocolaty too, add two tablespoons cocoa powder while mixing and increase the amount of milk by 2 tablespoons. You will wonder how I got the netted design on top of my chocolate icing. That’s because I pressed wire rack on top of it slightly, to give that design.
